Being a farm kid from SW Nebraska/NW Kansas and still involved in the family operation I truly enjoy the Deere Tractor idea. Most people may not realize but there is a lot of truth behind it. Almost all local John Deere and Case IH dealerships and even the local Chev dealer use a 400 for inventory, billing, parts id, etc. I acquired an old S/36 to play with from one of the largest Case IH dealerships in Western Kansas when it was replaced with a new 400. Both machines ran without a single problem ever, they ran the billing, inventory, the whole shabang for three large size stores. If you care to learn more about 400's influence in this way I beleive the company that sets up most of these systems is DIS or Dealer Information Systems. I hope some of these ideas make it up into IBM. Somebody needs to light a fire under the ad managers before they have an excuse to scrap one of the most stable and efficient systems ever. I do look forward to watching this years commercials. The etrade one was the best last year...

David Mine; #1 Camera fade in Scene: Corn Field in the middle of Iowa. Out in the field, Cold, Rainy day. You see a John Deere tractor harvesting corn. Man on the side of the field says "Hi, I'm xxxxxx from John Deere, Behind me you see one of our products. We build machines that run day in day out doing the work that needs to be done. It doesn't matter if it's raining or snowing, hot or cold. Our machines are depended on to do the job. Reliability, and Ruggedness are synonymous with our name. Those same attributes are also what we looked for when we picked a server to run our business. Something that doesn't break down. It just does the job that needs to be done. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. What server did we pick? An iSeries from IBM. iSeries when your business depends on it. ----------- #2 Camera fades in Scene: Race track in Germany. Around the track comes this blurrrr. It comes to a stop right in front of the camera. It's a Porsche 911 Turbo that is just drips sex. Painted High Gloss black that looks like you could just wade into it. Man on side of race track says "Hi I'm xxxxxx from Porsche North America. My business is high tech, High performance, state of the art automotive equipment. This car is thinks nothing of running for 24 hours straight at Lemans at peak performance. We accept nothing less. When it comes to running our business, It should come as no surprise that those are the same qualities that I look for in a computer system. Camera pans to a Stealth black machine computer. What server did we pick? An iSeries from IBM. iSeries when your business depends on it. ------------- I have a whole series like this with different companies different aspects , same conclusion.
